IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Bangalore is now requiring foreign nationals to submit a form from their landlord, hotel or other accommodation when they register with the Foreigners Regional Registration Office, extend their current visa or apply for exit permits.
What does the change mean? Foreign nationals in Bangalore must file Form C, as it is called, when registering with the Bangalore Foreigner Regional Registration Office or applying for a visa extension. Bangalore joins Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and other jurisdictions in implementing the requirement.
Background: India has rolled out the requirement in phases over the past three years to better track the whereabouts of foreign nationals. The form is now available online to make it easier for landlords to fill out.
BAL Analysis: The landlord requirement is a way for authorities to better track foreigners and prevent them from overstaying their visas. Those with questions about whether the requirement has been implemented in their jurisdiction should contact their BAL professional.
